NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, shares his thoughts on the Seahawks playoff defeat against the Panthers– If you were fortunate enough to watch the Seattle Seahawks taking on the Carolina Panthers in the NFC divisional playoff game, you saw one of the most unique football games ever played in the NFL. Never have I seen both teams in a single game play at such a high level in one half and such a low level in the other half.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks first playoff game of the 2015-6 NFL season– The Seahawks will face off against the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Wild Card match up, a team that they simply destroyed on the same field just four games ago. All it means is that the Seahawks already have a proven battle plan to take the Vikings out of the playoff race early with another decisive victory in Minnesota.
NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks final regular season game for the 2015 season against the Arizona Cardinals– Arizona is one of the top two teams in the NFL right now and the Seahawks area beat up with injuries all over the place. Seattle will have to play a nearly perfect game in all three aspects to beat the Cardinals on their field.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks home rematch against the NFC rival St. Louis Rams– The Seahawks defense has had a lot of success against inexperienced QBs the last several weeks. They beat Johnny Manziel, Jimmy Clausen, and Teddy Bridgewater over the past three games. The formula for disrupting the young passers was similar in each of the three games.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks as they head to Baltimore– It would be silly to ignore the devastating injuries the Ravens have been saddled with. The Seahawks have had their fair share of injuries too, but in the Seahawks case, the injuries have been a catalyst of team unity, dedication, and desire. For the Ravens, they have simply rolled over and died.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, reviews the keys to victory for the Hawks as they beat the Vikings 38-7– The Seahawks defense was absolutely suffocating the Vikings. I mentioned already Peterson finishing with 18 yards but the Vikings as a team had just 31 yards. The dominance by the defense allowed the Seahawks to possess the ball for 35:10 vs the Vikings 24:50.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks’ NFC West showdown against the Cardinals this Sunday– At 4-4, the Seahawks need this win at home against the Cardinals who lead the Seahawks by two games in the standings if they are to have any chance at another divisional crown. It won’t be easy however as the Cardinals are playing some of the best football we’ve seen from them in a very long time.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, critiques the Seahawks victory over the 49ers on Thursday night– Despite the win, this was not a good night for Russell Wilson. His two interceptions were both in the “really bad” category as far as his decision making is concerned. Both times his receivers were covered by two or more defenders. There was no need to force either of those throws and keep the 49ers hopes alive.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Hawks home opener against the Bears– The tardy one, Kam Chancellor, finally reported this week. It’s still somewhat of a question as to whether or not he plays against the Bears this week. Reports say he’s in great physical shape but gym shape is not game shape. Only games get you there and Kam missed all of the pre-season that is designed to get guys into game shape.
NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks in Week 2– Next for the Hawks it’s the Green Bay Packers, on the frozen tundra, no less. To call this game a tough match up early on for Seattle is a bit of an understatement. The Seahawks are going to have their hands full. Here’s a few of the things I’ll be watching closely for as the Seahawks try to take it to the Pack Sunday night.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, looks at the Week 1 Seahawks’ loss to the Ram– The tackling by the Seahawks defense was suspect at times and solid at others. Even guys like Bobby Wagner and Michael Bennett missed key tackles that led to big gains by the Rams. Missed tackles led to the Rams converting on 3rd and 10+ on several occasions. Those are times you expect the Seahawks D to get off the field and they just didn’t get it done.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, weighs in on the Chancellor and Bennett contract disputes– With Chancellor staying home for camp and the Seahawks appearing unwilling to budge on their policy of not renegotiating contracts until they have a year or less left on them this could easily turn into a prolonged dispute. Despite whichever side you might find yourself on in this contract battle you have to applaud the job that GM, John Schneider, and Pete Carroll have done to keep most of this team together.
